Welcome to the website of St Peter’s Cathedral, Adelaide.

The Second Sunday in Lent - 1 March 2015

Conflict and danger are things most sensible people seek to avoid at all costs. So we can understand Peter wanting to prevent Jesus from apparently deliberating courting suffering. But, as so often, this is not the way of Jesus. This Sunday’s Gospel sees harsh words of rebuke spoken to Peter. Mark 8: 31 – 38 is a stark reminder that we cannot get to Easter Day without Good Friday. The way of a disciple is not always the way we would choose to go.

Tonight we welcome Archdeacon David Bassett as he preaches the second in this year’s Lent Evensong series. It is with great pleasure that we welcome Josh van Konkelenberg as our new Cathedral Organist today.

If you’ve not yet seen it, make the time to visit the Lady Chapel and sit quietly allowing “The Three Women” to speak to you. It was a privilege for me to be with the artist, Bill Viola, when he saw his work for the first time in our Chapel.

Welcome to all Festival and other visitors; welcome to all disciples of Jesus who gather today to worship Our Lord.
